Flash Insider's dad on Dateline tonight!

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 11th 2005 3:19PM

Mike over at our Flash Insider blog tells us that his dad Mark is going to be on Dateline tonight, talking about Hurricane Katrina. Mr. Schleifstein co-wrote the Washing Away series for The Times-Picayune in 2002 that basically predicted what has happened in New Orleans. He also won a Pulitzer in 1997 for an environmental series on the erosion of the wetlands around the Gulf Coast.

Should be an interesting show. Dateline airs tonight at 7pm on NBC.

Shapiro is NBC News prez no more

After four years on the job, Neal Shapiro has stepped down as president of NBC News. Shapiro was brought to NBC from ABC in the early 90s after serving as a producer on PrimeTime Live. Being a behind-the-scenes person, it's not always clear just what he had to do with, but I think his most significant contribution was turning Dateline into a more-than-once-a-week news program. Frankly, I don't know why we don't do that with every show. You know, something like The Simpsons: Wednesday. In Shapiro's place, Steve Capus has been named acting president.

Dateline to cover missing persons bias

Awhile back I linked to a story about news outlets focusing their coverage of missing persons almost exclusively on young, white, female persons, ignoring the fact that the majority of people who still remain missing today are minorities. The most recent case involving Natalee Holloway has roused more complaints about bias, and it looks like Dateline NBC will be covering that topic for tonight's episode, with a strong focus on Tamika Huston, a black woman who went missing last year and whose mother fought an uphill battle to get national coverage from the major networks.
